Despite looking extremely vulnerable at times in the series, the Heat persevered and pulled off a seven-game series victory over the Spurs to capture their second straight title. While LeBron James and Co. take some time to celebrate, the front office is already hard at work to line things up for next season. Here's the latest out of South Beach..
- Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida looks at what's ahead for the back-to-back champion Heat, concluding that Ray Allen, who has a player option, and trade candidate Chris Bosh are likely to return to Miami.
- In his latest podcast, Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops debates whether the Heat should move Bosh.
- Top draft prospect Ben McLemore is garnering comparisons to Allen, writes Bob Finnan of the News-Herald.
- The next measuring stick for James will be to lead Miami to a three-peat, writes Al Iannazzone of Newsday. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen did it twice and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant once, so James surely has it in his sights.
